  • Collins beats Eminence, 23-21,...

    Playing at Martha Layne Collins in the first meeting between the two schools, newly-formed Collins wasted little time in putting away the visiting Eminence Warriors last Thursday night, easily winning 23-1.

  • Cats beat W-Verona by one run,...

    In Henry County’s only baseball game last week, the Wildcats beat Walton-Verona, 4-3, on Thursday night.

    The Wildcats evened up their overall record to 6-6 entering this week and played Owen County on Monday night. Weather permitting, they play at Shelby County this Wednesday at 7:15 p.m. and host Christian Academy-Louisville on Thursday at 5:30 p.m.

  • Eric Phillips breaks school...

    Most of the athletes at the Harry Greschel Invitational were slowed by the windy and cold conditions all day Saturday, but not Eric Phillips.

    The Henry County senior had a career meet with a school record in the 1,600-meter run, followed by an impressive win in the 3,200-run and an anchor on Henry’s seventh-place 1,600-meter relay team at Christian Academy-Louisville. It was his second school record, going along with his 5,000-meter cross-country record he set in the fall, and gave him his first win at an invitational-sized meet.

  • Warriors start softball season...

    Winning its first three games of the season and adding a forfeit win, the perfect 4-0 start for the Eminence softball team might be the best opening stretch of games in program history.

  • First EHS football signing since...

    It was no joke. When Shiven Harris signed to play football for Kentucky Wesleyan College on April Fool’s Day, Eminence High School got its first football signing in almost 10 years.

    There have been others from EHS who have, and continue to play football at the next level — notably Zach Young at Eastern Kentucky University and Ed Berry at the University of Kentucky — but Harris becomes the first to actually sign a letter of intent to play for a college since Marcus Wright signed with Kentucky State University in 2002.

  • Bats come alive for Wildcats

    Austin Hunsaker said his main objective last week during Henry County’s spring break was to come together as a team. After winning two of three games at the Seneca Spring Break Tournament, scoring an impressive 39 runs during the stretch, he said his Wildcats did just that.

  • Eminence starts 0-4

    The Eminence baseball team has dropped its first four games of the season and had a short stay in the 8th Region All “A” Classic with an opening round loss.

    The Warriors lost to Anderson County (12-1) in the opener on March 29, and followed with losses to Owen County (13-2), Trimble County (6-3) and Gallatin County (3-0) for the 0-4 start.

  • Updates on spring sports

    Now that the weather appears to be a little kinder to us — I did get a suntan during my needed weekend getaway to Cumberland Lake — it’s time to take a look over the first few weeks of the spring season. There have been plenty of highlights.

  • Henry softball wins five...

    After splitting its first two games of the season, coach Matt Wright said his Henry County softball team needed to focus more, limiting errors in the field and having a good mental approach at the plate. And after playing six more games last week, Wright said Henry did just that.

    The Ladycats strung together five straight wins, beating Walton-Verona, Owen County, Carroll County, Upper St. Clair (PA) and Anderson County, and lost to a tough Union County squad to leave them at 6-2 on the season. The final three games were part of the Oldham County Spring Break Classic.

  • UConn and Crowe are winners

    It wasn’t the prettiest mens’ NCAA basketball tournament this year, but it sure was exciting.

    And after what was probably the ugliest game of all in the finale, Connecticut beat Butler, 53-41, late Monday in a horrid shooting night and the fate of this year’s tournament and Henry Hoopla contest were sealed.
